Future Game Designers 12-Week Workshop resources-for-youth
Future Game Designers is an intensive, free, hands-on, 12-week workshop designed to introduce talented high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors to the process of digital game development and the game industry. The program will take place at the NYU Game Center’s facilities in Downtown Brooklyn. The workshop will introduce students to the methods, tools and principles used in developing digital games. Over the course of the 12 weeks, students will work alone and in pairs to create a series of four digital prototypes or ‘sketches’, culminating in a final polished game. Up to 16 students will be selected to participate, with a focus on recruiting groups that are underrepresented within the game industry, particularly students from lower socio-economic backgrounds. To learn more and to apply, visit the NYU Game Center website. Applications are due November 15, 2015.
